Several years ago, in celebration of our twentieth wedding anniversary, George and I took a Mediterranean Cruise. We visited many historical sites and were impressed by the gorgeous architecture and wonderful history that we learned about. One comment we kept making during our travels was “We should have taken pictures of all the different bathrooms we encountered”. There were incredible extremes… from holes created in stones for use as toilets in the ancient City of Ephesus to stylish extravagance in restrooms on the French Riviera! So many different takes on the simple concept of a bathroom!
In our culture, bathrooms also vary greatly. Some are basic, small and utilitarian while others create a lavish spa experience for the user with each visit. Over recent years we have certainly seen a trend towards larger, more luxurious spaces for bathrooms. In our business, as a “Design and Build” renovation company, we are sometimes able to work with Clients to expand their space – which could mean incorporating an underused closet or perhaps knocking out a wall here or there. We can also suggest colors, tiles, and fixturing that are best suited to the size and style you are after, to make the most out of your room. Other times, folks just want an updated, freshened up bathroom and a simple upgrade is exactly what they are after. We work closely with each of our Clients to discuss options, budget, personal needs and dreams, and can sometimes suggest possibilities that hadn’t previously been considered. With “We Do Bathrooms”, you will end up with exactly the renovation you envisioned at the start of your project. Our “We Do Bathrooms” team would love to work with you to create the best bathroom possible for your home.
Gift Ideas for Everyone On Your List
Still looking for the perfect holiday gift for someone on your list? Your bathroom can offer suggestions that are both creative and useful.
A set of beautiful towels or a luxurious bathmat is always a gift that is appreciated. Cozy bathrobes, which could be monogrammed for an extra special touch, would delight any recipient, and make excellent “his and her” gifts. A new soap dish or dispenser for either a sink or bathtub is always delightful to receive. For stocking stuffers or hostess gifts, why not consider pretty soaps, bath oils or a lovely room fragrance? Aromatic candles are a timeless choice that offer hours of enjoyment.
More creative suggestions could include a modern bar light or multi-function shower head. Updated fixtures in either polished chrome, brushed gold or nickel tones or any one of the other new finishes would add an instant facelift to sinks and bathtubs. For someone really hard to buy for, a heated towel warmer is a wonderful suggestion, and are available in a variety of styles and sizes.
Of course, the ultimate suggestion would be a total bathroom make-over in the new year! Why not give your spouse or partner a present that they can enjoy every day? WE DO BATHROOMS would be delighted to help make this ideal gift a reality for you or someone you care about.
